Sounds brilliant. Get some pictures up then.

How bout these  Wink











Hard to capture the warpage on camera but there's plenty of it too. I should never have sold you the java unless you agreed to do the welding for me  Cheesy

Well I was majorly pissed off with the welding on the 69 and I wasn't prepared to spend more money on a paint job while the metal work wasn't up to standard. I had a rough past year too which meant I'd no time to do ay work fixing the body.

So I started looking for a donor body I could put all the parts I had collected to good use, late last year I spotted this on craigslist, it looked perfect and the price was a steal so I went ahead and bought it.



Turned out better than I expected, never welded or crashed and 100% original paint and panels. Original 1600 sp motor runs like a champ too.



Got the burners fitted and adjustable front beam and drove it like this for a few months.



Pulled the body off last month to get stuff ready for the engine transplant. All wiring and plumbing now done and engine is sitting on the stand ready to be fitted.





Waiting on some paint to dry on the front suspension then I can roll the restored pan under the body and fit it back together. Hopefully be attempting to fire it up sometime this week.

Only noticed the odometer reading the other day, hopefully a good omen  Cheesy



The 69 body is still here, I'm gonna fix it up as time allows.

It didn't until the fuckwit I paid to fix it made it worse. I wasn't parting 5 grand + for a paint job until the issues are fixed. I've got most of the drivers side straight again now, still plenty of work needed to get it right.

Getting close  Grin





Stainless Steel for return line, aluminium for flexi to filter



Redone the stainless lines inside the tunnel as they were a mess.





Gonna test the fuel system today, praying there's no leaks

So I got the engine in and all hooked up, had to get a hydraulic hose company to make a fuel line as the stainless steel I bought still hasn't arrived.

Spent the day yesterday trying to get it running, managed to run for 5 seconds, suffering from slow cranking so I swapped starters and problem persists so I'm suspecting a worn bushing.

Fucking Irish summers eh  Cheesy I wasn't gonna sit indoors all day when I was this close, I got wet too if it makes it better.

All good so far no leaks or worrying noises, the ecu is back to square one though as far as mapping goes, dunno where the map from the dyno session went? I'm at the end of my capabilities with it now and I need to get help to tune it. Couple of little things to finish and I'm on the road at last.

Might be worth offering to build engines for the previous builder Smiley

No chance, we'll have switched to electric by the time I've another one built  Cheesy

Anyways still need to see how this one survives before I can call it a success.

Well it still hasn't blown up which is good  Cool Got a base map sorted thanks to Dave at bugbitz, gotta love dave his work is top notch and he teaches you what he's doing as he's doing it, he fixed all the machining errors on my case and cylinders too before I built the motor. I'm gonna dump the oil and check valve lash in the morning and hopefully take it for a drive

I haven't had a chance to work on it lately, provisionally booked in for a rr session but I haven't been given a date yet.

Tires are toyo proxes 165/65 and 205/70. May try a 185 on the front sometime there's plenty of room for them.
